World Blitz Championship 2009

There are two chess femmes playing in this elite of the elite championship of 22 players: GM Judit Polgar (HUNG 2680) and GM Alexandra Kosteniuk (RUS 2517). So far, the ladies have scored some telling wins through Round 28 (which gives you an idea of how fast and furious this BLITZ Championship is going), but both of them are out of contention for a medal. There are 42 rounds altogether. What are the odds that they can stage a second-half comeback? Hmmm.... This news is probably a bit old (from The Week in Chess), after 17 rounds: 1. Carlsen, Magnus g NOR 2801 21.0 2. Anand, Viswanathan g IND 2788 20.0 3. Karjakin, Sergey g UKR 2723 18.5 19. Polgar, Judit g HUN 2680 11.5 20. Kosteniuk, Alexandra g RUS 2517 11.0
